November brings more Nottinghamshire artists to the Chapel Art Gallery at the Framework Knitters Museum in Ruddington. Celebrated at this fourth exhibition will be Lynda Childs, Dawn Wilsher and Nigel Boughton-Smith. The exhibition will open on Saturday 19 November and run until Saturday 25 February.

Paul Baker, museum manager at the Framework Knitters Museum, said, “We’re really excited for our visitors to see the fantastic artwork coming up in this next exhibition.”

The gallery, which opened earlier this year, is a partnership between the Nottingham Society of Artists and the Framework Knitters Museum. It features work from some of the finest artists in Nottinghamshire, and a contribution from the sale of any art is split between the museum and the society.

Paul continued, “We’re proud to work with such a prestigious organisation as the Nottingham Society of Artists, and our visitors certainly seem to enjoy the added attraction the gallery provides.”

Nigel Boughton-Smith, one of the artists featured in the exhibition and the Nottingham Society of Artists coordinator for the Chapel Gallery, said, “We thought we’d do something special for Christmas so as well as the artwork, there will also be cards and miniature prints available that people will be able to buy as gifts.”

The Chapel Gallery will be open Thursday to Saturday, 11am to 4:30pm until the 23 December 2016, and Thursday to Saturday, 11am to 2:30pm during February 2017. Please note that the museum and gallery are closed during January.

Entrance to the gallery is FREE, whilst normal admission fees apply to the museum. The museum shop and café is open to all visitors, as well as the general public, to purchase refreshments and souvenirs as usual.
